If you don’t like to read, head to the bottom for a  full video review!

Have you ever wondered what would make the best backpack for survival?

Survival guide, emergency essentialsMany other beginning preppers have this very same question, I know because I was one of them.

Unsure as to what pack to use.

That’s why I made this review, to help you in figuring out what the best survival backpack is, at a price you can afford.

I served 4 years in the Marines, so I wanted to find a good pack that was like the assault pack I used when I served.

I have personally bought this pack,

gone through every pocket, examined every zipper, and checked straps.

So, if you’re ready lets jump right in…

As a prepper, it is important to have a tough emergency pack to store all of your essential survival items.emergency essentials, survival pack, emergency kit, survival kit

After much research and checking reviews,

I believe I have found one that is durable and also cheap enough to fit within my budget as a working American.

The military tactical assault pack from Reebow has received a ton of good high rated reviews.

It is also well within my budget as most of their packs are below 40 bucks.

This pack has a ton of benefits for you, including:

  • Tactical assault backpack: Capacity: 34L. Size approx.:11″*18″*12″ / 28*45.5*30CM (W*H*D), Military backpack is made of high density fabric, durable and water-resistant.
  • The assault pack with double-stitched, Heavy duty zippers and utility-style cord pulls, Side and front load compression system, Comfortable padding back area, Ventilated mesh padding shoulder strap.
  • Military backpack is hydration compatible that works great for a 2.5L hydration bladder (backpack didn’t include hydration bladder) as hydration backpack or outdoor camping hiking backpack.
  • This tactical assault pack can be used as 3 day survival pack, bug out bag, combat backpack, range bag, hunting backpack, rucksack military army backpack or trekking backpack.
  • The tactical backpack has MOLLE system, MOLLE is a little different as most tactical backpacks and is not to spec. Spacing between of MOLLE is less than 1/2″

Lets dig a little deeper…

On my first impression when I opened the box was that the bag was a little smaller then I was thinking, still I was only planning to use it for hiking.

The zippers on the bag feel very heavy duty, and the material the bag was made from seems to Survival Kit, emergency kit, emergency essentials, emergency disaster kit checklist, emergency pack, survival first aid, medical kit, survival pack, Prepper first aid, survivalist, essential survival itemsbe pretty tough.

The bag uses MOLLE webbing, so you can attach multiple devices on the outside of your pack.

I would probably attach my medical kit along with a fold up shovel on the outside.

You have a fair number of clips to help hold your gear on.

There are straps underneath to hold a poncho or blanket so you can save some room in the actual pack.

On the back side of the pack is a zippered pouch to hold your camelback or other water source.

It also contains a Velcro strip to hold the camelback up so it doesn’t slide down to the bottom.

There seems to be a fair amount of room inside the pack, I tested this out by packing the bag for a 2 day hike and still had a little room left over.

The bag also contains chest and waist straps.

The waist strap is kind of loose and comes apart quite easily.

I plan to take some duct tape and wrap it around where I need the strap to stay at. That way it serves multiple uses as I can also use the duct tape if I need to make any repairs to my gear.

I have a camping trip planned the end of July and this pack will get a ton of use then, so we will see how the pack stands up to wear and tear.

(UPDATE)

I have used this pack out on my camping trip.

It held up great, had no issues, and stored all my gear for the 4 days we were out there.

I had around 70 pounds in the pack and had no major discomfort, and I have back issues from the military.

This pack would definitely be usable as a 3 day survival pack with no issues.

 

Don’t like my opinion? Here’s what other people say…

Generally I’ve stuck to brands that cost a bit more but I know are of high quality. I bought these as Christmas presents and I was surprised at the high level quality when they arrived! I’ve literally paid 4-5 times this amount for a good (true) Nylon bag and I’ve had them for years. I expect these bags will also last for years. The quality is actually quite amazing. I ordered two and I would absolutely order some again. -Clem

I bought this to use as a go bag in my POV. I keep a Kel-Tec Sub 2000 folded up inside of it. Along with a couple hundred rounds of ammo for the rifle and my EDC. I keep a med kit in it as well. This is the perfect bag to have on hand just in case SHTF. -Jack Washburn

Was very skeptical at first. I am super picky about my stuff and this backpack surpassed my expectations. It has a lot of useful compartments and plenty of storage. Material is though and latches help keep everything in place. I was able to fit around 60 rds of 7mm ammo, headphones, safety glasses, maintenance items, and everything fit perfectly. –Jesse

These are just some of the reviews I read when deciding to order.

There are a couple bad reviews as well…

Some customers had zippers broke or something wrong with the bag,

but the company was quick to respond and send a new one to the customer.

I did not have any issues when I received my bag, everything was great and it was ready to go!
